"How do you feel about the recent presidential election in
the Philippines?"

Richard Turner, education
grad. student: I'm am-
bivalent about the election.
I've been to the Philippines
and I see it in two different
perspectives. My hope is
that Aquino's ideas are sin-
cere and not just words to
further her own self.

Heather Suggs, civil
engineering student: I'm
really not too familiar with
the issue, but knowing as lit-
tle as I do, I think that a
woman should win. But
seriously, to me it seems
Marcos had the advantage to
win, since he was already in
power and had the backing
of the military.

Patty Dwyer, natural
resource junior: I wish that
Marcos didn't win. With all
the corruption involved, I
don't think there was a
chance for a free or
"democratic" election. But,
no matter how the election
affects political situations,
it's important that the U.S.
retains good relations with
the Philippines.

Adam Kulakow, LSA fresh-
man: The election and Mar-
cos' actions were predic-
table; neither party would
fully accept loss, and in fact
both claimed to be the win-
ner. It's unfortunate that the
U.S. had to get involved with
the whole process. I guess it
shows the world that
democracy is not such a
simple process.

Sherif Emil, chemical
engineering senior: I've
been following the issue
closely, and I think it's a far-
ce. Since I'm also from the
"third world," I can identify
with the issue; Marcos had
said he would never give up
control, so to me it's clear
that he had an "election" to
make himself look good to
the outside world.

Gary Antonick, engineering Joe
senior: I'm upset that sophon
Reagan isn't taking a stance have1
against Marcos. It's obvious it's ob
that Aquino won, but we scand
aren't doing anything to en- opinio
force the true outcome. And haveg
also, we should not just use ted, b
them, but have more con- didn't.
cern for their country as
Speakers for the International
Student Solidarity Day for Soviet
Jewry last night urged students to get
involved in improving the plight of
Soviet Jews.
Bill Graham, an active member of
the Detroit Soviet Jewry Committee,
showed a slide presentation of his 1984
visit to the Soviet Union to an audien-
ce that filled the Union's Pendleton
Room: The slides focused on some of
the 16 refusenik families he, his wife,
and two children met secretly during
late night hours after touring the
streets of Moscow that day.
RICHARD RICE, the newly-elected
Chicago delegate to the national
Soviet Jewry conference in
Washington, discussed Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev's scheduled visit
to Washington, D.C. and the oppor-
tunities it holds for Soviet Jews.
"President Reagan and Secretary
of State George Shultz appear to be
committed to getting Jews out of

Shiouh-Wei Twu, architec-
ture grad student: I think the
Philippine people need a
political change. The current
economic situation is very
bad, and if such conditions
continue, it's very possible
that they may turn com-

Denise Mclain, art junior:
The Philippine people should
be skeptical about the whole
election because of tam-
pering, especially by Mar-
cos. I don't believe that Mar-
cos is telling the truth about
his actions or the election.
Also, the disorganization and
the two different groups of
supporters seem to be
tearing the Philippine people
and nation apart.

Bridgette Forkin, dental
hygiene junior: The Philip-
pines can't seem to get con-
trol over their affairs or
their country, so I wish the
U.S. could do more to help
them get things settled. It's
unfortunate that we aren't
making a greater attempt to
organize their affairs, since
they were once a U.S.

Caller claims Israeli captive
killed by Moslem extremists
TYRE, Lebanon - An anonymous telephone caller claimed last night
that Moslem extremists had killed one of two kidnapped Israeli soldiers
after the Israeli army ignored a warning to stop searching for the victims
in south Lebanon villages.
The man, saying he spoke for the Islamic Resistance Front, said in a
call to the leading Beirut independent newspaper, An-Nahar, that the
group would release a polaroid photograph of the slain Israeli today.
About 1,000 Israeli soldiers scoured south Lebanon for the third day
yesterday, searching Shiite Moslem villages for the two soldiers who had
been kidnapped in a Monday ambush on a checkpoint in the Israeli
"security zone" in south Lebanon.
Guerrillas of the Islamic Resistance, an alliance of fundamentalist
Shiite Moslems, had said one of the Israeli soldiers would be killed
yesterday unless the Israelis pulled back across the border.
Maj. Gen. Ori Orr, Israel's northern commander, said his men would
continue the search despite the threat.
The guerrillas, who had said in anonymous communications that both
Israelis were being treated for serious wounds, also vowed to shell set-
tlements in northern Israel.
Antitrust laws may be revised
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration, declaring that
American business needs greater flexibility to compete in global
markets, sent Congress legislation yesterday which would rewrite por-
tions of antitrust laws that have been on the books more than 70 years.
"Many American industries that compete in global markets cannot af-
ford to be shackled by outmoded, unduly restrictive antitrust rules," At-
torney General Edwin Meese told a news conference.
The attorney general said the proposed reforms will "greatly benefit
American industries, American workers and American consumers."
The foundation of U.S. antitrust law is the Sherman Act of 1890 and the
Clayton Act of 1914 and "some of their key provisions ... need prompt
revision," Meese said.
"American firms face a level of competition today that is vastly dif-
ferent than when our antitrust laws were first enacted," said Commerce
Secretary Malcolm Baldrige, who has been pushing for antitrust changes
for several years.
"More than 75 percent of U.S. products face foreign competition," he
Group finds MIAs in Asia
WASHINGTON - Members of a congressional delegation just back
from Southeast Asia said yesterday they are convinced Americans are
still living in Vietnam - but not necessarily against their will.
The group returned Tuesday night from a trip to Hanoi, Bangkok and a
Cambodian refugee camp on the Thai border to press for a full accounting
of Americans still missing from the Indochina war.
Rep. Gerald Solomon (R-N.Y.), leader of the delegation, said there is
an "overwhelming amount" of evidence of Americans living in the
"That doesn't mean that we all know there are live-Americans being
held against their will," he said at a news conference. "There are live
Americans we want to account for."
Solomon said the delegation does not want to raise false hopes among
families of some 2,400 listed by the Defense Department as still missing in
Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. He also said the delegation could not
discuss specific cases or evidence and emphasized that delegation mem-
bers had not actually seen any live Americans on their trip.
Libya may face U.S. reprisals
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration has not ruled out using
military force against Libya to combat terrorism sponsored by Col.
Moammar Khadafy, a State Department official said yesterday.
Robert Oakley renewed the administration's threat of possible military
reprisals against Libya as Pentagon sources said the Navy is weighing a
new round of flight operations next month over the disputed Gulf of Sidra.
Asked whether the administration continued to view military force as
an option, Oakley said: "Consideration of the careful use of force in such
circumstances has not been ruled out in the accordance with our right of
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) tolk Oakley the worst way to respond to
terrorism is "with strong rhetoric but no action," suggesting the ad-
ministration should adopt President Theodore Roosevelt's maxim of
'Walk softly and carry a big stick."'
Youths set fire to informer;
More violence in S. Africa
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - Black youths set fire to a suspected
police informer yesterday and riot squads doused a throng of funeral
mourners with tear gas and purple dye, witnesses said.
As scattered violence persisted across South Africa, youths in
Pretoria's Atteridgeville township seized the alleged informer, doused
him with gasoline and burned him to death, said a reporter at the scene.

Police confirmed finding the body.
Hours later, riot squads with water cannon and tear gas moved to break
up mourners in the black township in the capital after the burial of two
black youths shot by police last week.
Elsewhere in South Africa, Nobel laureate Bishop Desmond Tutu and
two other leading clergymen urged Western banks yesterday not to
reschedule South Africa's $23.7 billion foreign debt until the white-
minority government is removed from power.

Russia," Rice said, adding that the
issue of Soviet Jewry will be on the
agenda for the Washington summit,
although he does not expect any im-
mediate solution.
Explaining the problems of Jews in
the Soviet Union, Graham said that
everybody who lives in the country
must have a passport. Jews must
have passports saying explicitly that
the owner is Jewish.
"THE PROBLEM with that is that
it allows for easy discrimination,"
Graham said. "The policy in the
Soviet Union is to try to make the
whole culture Rissian, so the Jews
have a rougher time getting ahead."
He added that refuseniks, Jews
whose requests to leave the country
have been denied, automatically face
governmentally-imposed downward
mobility. He told of several professors
and doctors who were told, after at-
tempting to leave the country, that
they had to work as nightguards,

The day's events, including an
evening speech, is part of a nation-
wide effort to increase awareness

about the plight of the Soviet Jews
This year the University SSSJ chapter
was asked by Brandeis University to
coordinate the 10th annual Inter-
national Solidarity Day.
The official solidarity day is ,Feb.
27, when students from all over the
country converge in Washington, D.C.
to lobby legislators. Meanwhile their
members remaining on campus stage
rallies similar to the one held on the
Diag. The University made their ef-
fort early because Solidarity Day falls
on spring break.
Student struggle member Heidi
Grey said 50 campuses participated in
last year's events coordinated by
Brandeis, and she predicted as many
will participate this year.


' T r JTneed some advice on fash-
ion. I was in a terrific
woman's store last week trying to pick an outfit
for my interviews. There was a beautiful black tweed
skirt for $85 that went with a $115 blue blazer. But then
I didn't have enough left for a $65 silk shirt.
So I found a different blazer of a lighter blue for only $85. But there
wasn't enough contrast with the shirt and I would've needed to add a brooch
which cost $40.
Then I figured I could wear a dress instead. But you need new shoes for
dresses-shoes that work with skirts just don't transfer, you know-and the
least expensive outfit I found like that was $350. And that didn't include the
belt that went perfectly.
Anyhow, I ended up going to my interview in sort-of nice corduroy pants
that kind of matched an Oxford shirt I've had since 1980. And I don't think
I'm going to get the job.
-Stripes with Argyles
In an average woman's store there are 250 dresses, 80 skirts, 400
shirts, 100 pairs of pants and at least 500 other types of belts, stockings, pins
